Even a humble student of the history of Islamic rule and the rise and fall of empires in different parts of the world knows that the reign of Harun al-Rashid is incomplete without the mention of Bramka and so does the reign of the Seljuks. Is incomplete without
Nizam-ul-Mulk holds a high position in the Seljuk government, which has carried out the most important works related to welfare, reform, construction and military management.
Nizam-ul-Mulk Tusi’s full name was Abu Ali Hassan Ibn Ali bin Ishaq, who was the chief minister and special trustee of Malik Shah Seljuk, the most famous king of the Seljuk dynasty.
Today is the day of death of Nizam-ul-Mulk Tusi. About this talented minister, the eminent historian Philip K. Haiti said, “This is a diamond in the political history of Islam.” Another historian, Amir Ali, called Tusi the second most capable Asian administrator after Yahya Barmaki.
Nizam-ul-Mulk Tusi was born on April 10, 1018 in a village near Tusi. He managed the Seljuk government in a systematic and efficient manner with full authority for almost twenty years and rendered innumerable services in most spheres of life, especially in the field of teaching. Behind the Seljuk administration and stable government was the intelligence, ability and skill of Nizam-ul-Mulk Tusi which made the kingdom stable and prosperous. Nizam-ul-Mulk Tusi passed away in 1092 in a murderous attack while passing through the Sinai Desert during his journey to Baghdad.
Historians write that Tusi was a man of learning and an appreciator of scholars, philosophers, writers and poets. That is why celebrities and intellectuals from all over the country were gathered in the court. During the same period, in 1066, the first great Nizamiya University of the Islamic world was established at Neshapur.
Nizam-ul-Mulk Tusi also launched the “Glorious Calendar” in collaboration with the famous poet, geologist and geographer Omar Khayyam. Tusi wrote the most important book on the administration of the government, the codes of the state and politics, “Siyasatnameh”, which contained his personal experiences, knowledge and observations.
Another major achievement of the Nizam-ul-Mulk is to equip it with modern and contemporary lines by introducing a system of espionage and intelligence across the country, especially in the political, administrative, governmental and armed forces. Historians write that Tusi spent his entire life in the service of Islam and the promotion of education.
